There was a very good question asked. The question is, "Will the 3 year program have internship in the 3rd year?"
Timothy Nguyen
01:16:59
In the 3 year part-time program, you do not have internship in your first year.
Timothy Nguyen
01:17:19
For 3 year part-time on-campus students, you have internship in your 2nd year and in your 3rd year.

For the writing sample application requirement... what type of sample would you suggest for someone who has been out of school for longer than 5 years? Is there a length requirement or preferred topic?
brianna.avila
01:58:48
I have a question about the writing sample we need to submit. Will it affect us if we can’t find a writing sample graded from a professor.

although the letter recommendation is not required would it help?
dorothychen
01:59:30
I have not worked for 10 years and not been in school for more. What type of recommendations would you prefer?

02:05:23
the cal state application also has a personal statement portion. And you said there is specific questions to answer. so are there two separate PS question formats?
Timothy Nguyen
02:06:07
Hi Vt, you do not need to answer the Cal State Application's personal statement portion.

brianna.avila
02:08:04
Does the social work related experience have to be in certain areas? I worked with my central coast ymca summer program for 4 years and a good portion of those kids were foster kids. I now work with minorities in a school setting
Stephanie

if you don’t have the best undergrad gpa, what would you suggest to make your application as strong as possible?
Heather
02:13:00
I thought you mentioned a full-time course load is 5 classes. You only mentioned 4 classes for the 2-year programs (2 classes each during 2 days). Is the 5th class the supervision class?
Timothy Nguyen
02:13:45
There are 4 academic courses and 1 field seminar class

I was disconnected earlier so I’m not sure if this was already answered.. Can students get paid for their field education?
Timothy Nguyen
02:16:40
Some students are able to secure internships that offer some funding; however, the majority of internships are unpaid.
